Indian legendary batsman Mithali Raj announced her retirement from T20 international cricket today. Thus, there were quite a few trends that revolved around this topic. Shikha Pandey compared her precision of driving the ball through the covers with bisecting a line with a compass during school days. Cheteshwar Pujara and Shikhar Dhawan congratulated her on a wonderful career. Danielle Wyatt tweeted that it was a pleasure playing with and against the 36-year-old.
Also, Indian pacer Mohammed Shami turned 29 today. On this occasion, his fast bowling counterpart Umesh Yadav wished him a happy birthday. On the other hand, Harbhajan Singh put up a late birthday wish for Ishant Sharma whose birthday was celebrated yesterday. In the other trends, Pakistan cricketer Ahmad Shahzad was involved in an interactive session with the fans on Twitter. When asked about his favourite current song, he replied: ‘Bada Pachtaoge’. Furthermore, India’s Test vice-captain Ajinkya Rahane expressed happiness about the series win in the West Indies and seemed contented with his performances.
1. Shikha Pandey puts the greatness of Mithali Raj into words after the latter announced her T20I retirement
In school, we were taught to bisect a line using a compass. The geometry classes continued to transpire even when I joined the Indian team. Whenever @M_Raj03 di goes out to bat, it is the same. No matter how many fielders are at cover, she always bisects the gap perfectly.

13. Ben Cutting isn’t amused with Australia’s decision to drop Usman Khawaja for the fourth Test
Captain the tour match, score 72 but thanks for your service. How do you not select a bloke who avgs 40 in one of the most important test matches in recent history? The way Jofra is going, Uzi will bat 2nd innings as concussion replacement for someone anyway.
